1979 Ferrari 512 BB serial number 28053.

The growing classic car market has brought about another exciting Ferrari for export. This one came with a center mounted 12 cylinder engine that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

With just one owner since 1980, this 512 BB has under 20,000 miles on it. What makes it even more rare is it's a right-hand drive (RHD) Ferrari, meaning it was always rare to find in the states. Most are are quickly sold overseas to UK buyers due to an even more favorable market.

Being loaded into a container and shipped to the UK was what the car had been destined for since it was sold at the Auctions America Ft. Lauderdale auction this year. With a selling price of $286,000 (including the auction’s 10% commission), this was well above $258,040, which was Hagerty’s estimated value of the vehicle.
